I still have a 1 1/2 years left on my cozmo. I'm hoping that somebody
comes out with something comparable when my cozmo dies. I recently
started with a new endo and she has been pushing me to get a "modern"
pump. When I start listing what I want in a pump, she tells me that no
pumps have all those items. I then tell her that my outdated pump does
and it shuts her up.
Long Live the Cozmo
